    KAU has a proper placement cell which will definitely boost your chances of being employed in a reputed organization. The Placement cell is very active and is always organizing different industrial visits to different farms, industries, and employment is done in different fields such as Animal Husbandry, Agrochemicals, etc. However, it could be improved.

    Good, Though very less frequency of the campus job but student mostly get jobs in ARS, Banks, Civil Cervices. There was placement cell but not that much strong with less intake at that time. Our university is very reputed so even students got placed in private company by approaching them. We were informed with all jobs advertisement and employment news facilities.
